Das Vorbenutzungsrecht

Author: Katja Brzezinski
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
ISBN: 3161538285
Release Date: 2015-09-04
Genre: Law

English summary: Within the legislation of technical protection rights and design, the right of prior use stands in an area of conflict between "self-evident" and "foreign object." With regard to patent legislation, Katja Brzezinski examines if and how this ambivalence could be resolved in light of the historical development of this law, legal and economic-political coherencies, as well as its function in the patent system. German description: Das Vorbenutzungsrecht ist ein integraler Bestandteil der technischen Schutzrechte und des Designrechts. Es bewirkt, dass die Ausschliesslichkeitswirkung des jeweiligen Schutzrechts gegenuber demjenigen nicht eintritt, der die Erfindung bzw. das Design bereits zur Zeit der Anmeldung im Inland in Benutzung genommen oder Veranstaltungen hierzu getroffen hat. Katja Brzezinski geht der Frage nach, inwieweit die Ambivalenz des Vorbenutzungsrechts zwischen "Selbstverstandlichkeit" und "Fremdkorper" in der vom Ausschliesslichkeitsgedanken gepragten Patentrechtsordnung aufgelost werden kann. Hierfur untersucht sie die geschichtliche Entwicklung dieses Rechts, rechts- und wirtschaftspolitische Zusammenhange sowie seine Funktion im weiteren Kontext der Patentrechtsordnung und erklart das Vorbenutzungsrecht auf dieser Basis als legitimes Instrument des Interessenausgleichs in der Patentrechtsordnung.

Antitrust Patents and Copyright

Author: François Lévêque
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
ISBN: 1781008043
Release Date: 2005-01-01
Genre: Law

In modern markets innovation is at least as great a concern as price competition. The book discusses how antitrust policy and patent and copyright laws interact to create market dynamics that affect both competition and innovation. Antitrust and intellectual property policies for the most part are complementary, sharing common goals of promoting innovation and economic welfare. In some cases, however, their distinct approaches, one based on competition and the other on exclusion, come into conflict. As antitrust authorities focus increasingly on ensuring that firms do not interfere with innovation by rivals or impede the pace of technological progress in an industry, they necessarily must confront difficult questions about the strength and scope of intellectual property rights. When should private property rights give way to public competition objectives? When is it appropriate to remedy anticompetitive outcomes through access to protected intellectual property? How does antitrust enforcement or competition itself affect incentives to innovate? Leading economists and lawyers address these questions from both US and EU perspectives in discussing salient antitrust cases involving intellectual property rights such as Microsoft, Magill, Kodak, IMS and Intel.
